'One Life to Live' Alum Eddie Alderson Reveals Lymphoma Diagnosis, Will Begin Chemotherapy

Eddie Alderson
One Life to Live actor Eddie Alderson revealed on Instagram that he has been diagnosed with lymphoma.

"This weekend has been a crazy one to say the least," he wrote. "Some of you may already know, but Friday I was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer and will begin chemotherapy sometime this week. While this journey will not be easy. I know that together with all of my family and friends, we will beat this! Just a bump in the road on this crazy ride we call life! I will keep all of you updated as we go along."

Lymphoma is the name for a group of blood cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. The two main types are Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

Alderson, 22, played Matthew Buchanan on One Life to Love from 2001 to 2012.

In August, Alderson's former co-star Kassie DePaiva announced that she was being treated for Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

We Love Soaps is sending positive thoughts to the Alderson and DePaiva families.
